    Got up nice and early to go to HH to have my new sunroof fitted.
    On M5 lorry overturned so all the traffic diverted to M6.
    Passed that and further up Bus on fire just before Stoke exit.( hope nobody hurt in accidents)
    Been sitting more in traffic then driving.
    Not looking forward driving back.
    Rant over,sitting in HH showroom now drinking nice hot coffee.

    Ah yes the M6 car park .. I remember those days well .. use to use it on weekly basis back in the late 90's. I can only imagine its much worse these days.

    Enjoy your coffee and hope HH sort out your sunroof and look into to the gearbox whine.

    I hate the M6 not as much as the M62 I despise that piece of Tarmac. Going to Stoke from Leeds I have to use both of the motorways.. At least you got there have they started work on your car ?

    Get Adrian look at your gearbox whine go up the flyover around HH as that is ideal mixture of 40 and 30 mph zone and gradients.

    Had so many emails to get through this morning I sat in HH doing this. Think there was somebody there who could have been Zoran but I failed to engage in any conversation :Blushing:

    Apologies if that was you I sat next to Zoran!!!!

    Yep, grey 57 reg legend was mine.

    Sorry to hear about the traffic. I only came from Manchester but heard about the heavy traffic on M6. Honda Satnav directed me through Stoke and took me a while to get to HH.

    Shame we did not get a chance to talk despite being right next to each other!

    One thing I can say is that the radar cruise is amazing! All the way to and back from HH set cruise to 72 and then let the car do the rest. It is the most amazing invention ever (even better than sliced bread dare I say!). Makes driving so easy and relaxing.

    Nice one
    Not to worry,we will see each other again I am sure at HH.
    Now I am really jealous and sound like a broken record but I want a Legend now.
    Damn will have to be good to missus in the future and nag her to buy one LOL.

    The secret if you want the other half to let you buy a Legend is this....

    You plant a seed in her mind...gently and subtly first of all drop a hint of the Legend. Whether in normal conversation of whispering it into her ear at night whilst she is asleep!!!

    Then everyday for 4 years you keep mentioning a Legend to her, non stop....at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ring her from work and talk about it. Talk about it on holiday. Wake her up in the middle of the night and mention it.

    Eventually she will become so fed up that she will want you to buy it just so that you will shut up.....

    Job done! It was 4 years in the planning but worth every second!

    Buy it mate. Honest you will not regret it. Everytime I get in I cannot help but smile :Smile:

    M25 is a glorified car park, been stuck going to Gatwick a few time but made it in time for the flights.

    I live 9 miles from the centre, and worked as a central London service technician for nearly 5 years. That 9 miles took me an hour each way in and out every day.

    London is the worst.currently standing still on A40,not moving anywhere.

    The 9 miles into London I used to do was the A40. Lovely road, it was gridlocked at Park Royal yesterday and Saturday.

    Forgot to say A40 would be bad today as M1 closed between 5 and 1. Two BMWs crashed at 2.30am killing two people.
